Towers and sundial - Ely Cathedral
Towers and sundial - Ely Cathedral
The dial face, positioned on the outside wall of the South Transept, declines slightly west, so more afternoon than morning hours are marked with the half-hours marked by crosses. The motto above the dial face is in Greek and translates as 'Know the time' or alternatively 'Choose the timely moment'. There is no information regarding the date of the sundial but records exist of its restoration.
